Pissing me off

First, what the heck does 'pissing me off' mean? Does that mean whizzing on yourself while turning off a light switch? Not recommended, since water is a conduit and you know, you don't want to get zapped.

Anyway, I'm just popping in here to pop off about a few things. A rant blog, if you will.

First of all... it was great to hear that 40% of bottled water is TAP water! Can you say, 'duh'? Not only that, but the plastic bottle that it comes in is made with byproducts of oil!

Did you hear me? Er, read me?

Oil!

So every time you're drinking a Coca Cola's Dasani or Pepsi's Aquafina, you're drinking something that came out of a regular faucet.

Or as they say, PWS .. which means, "Public Water Source."

In other words, tap water!

And you're paying up the nose for it. You, not me. You see, I've been boycotting bottled water for a long time because plastic bottles are manufactured from oil, thus benefiting our middle eastern friends from the, um, Middle East.

And sorry, but I do enough of that when I fill up my tank.

And that pisses me off, too. Especially if I've had too much bottled water ... which I won't ... since I'm boycotting it. Anyway, if you've read my Adventures of Guy books, you know I harbor a grudge against Big Oil, and am a conspiracy theorist who wholeheartedly believes Big Oil buys up any patent that might actually endanger their monopoly on our wallets.

I mean, I joke about it, and it's fun in my books, but I really do believe there's some merit to it, and our own government won't do squat about it, because they've been bought and sold by Big Oil, too.

Read my short story in "Missing" if you want to indulge in my conspiracy theory.

So I'm pissed at the bottled water manufacturers, the bottle manufacturers and Big Oil.


How about you? Who are you pissed at?

  1. I'm upset because I only got to read half of my niece's copy of FANG FACE before I left Michigan and now I have to wait until it is released so I can buy it and finish it.
